Jenelle Teen Mom Admits Drug Use While Pregnant

Jenelle Evans On Heroin And Arrest History
Jenelle Evans has been arrested for heroin possession in the past, but she only tested positive for THC while pregnant with her daughter, and Child Protective Services were called in to do a wellness check on the MTV reality TV star.
THC, commonly found in marijuana, was found in Evans's system, but Ensley, her daughter with David Eason, did not suffer from any after effects of the drug.
"I'm not going to lie about that. I tested positive for THC and Ensley did not test positive. I did. So CPS were like — I was in the hospital — they said, ‘Did you smoke when you were pregnant?' I said, ‘I did within the past 30 days. I said I have really bad esophageal spasms and I throw up every 5 minutes, I can't even eat.' And they said, ‘Okay, some moms do that. We are not here to judge, we are writing down your information.'"
It is believed Jenelle admitted to the drug use as a reason for CPS's wellness check, as she has been accused of abuse in the past, which CPS also investigated.
"And after I had Ensley they said CPS will just come by to do a [wellness] check since you tested positive. They came and did a [wellness] checkup and everything is fine. They closed the case.
"CPS has been here like 30 times, not just for that, but for haters online saying that I abuse my kids. So they came and checked up on that… First of all if I were on drugs I wouldn't be able to sit here in the morning and get the kids ready and eat healthily. Or I'd be losing a lot of weight."
